Description

Historic Ogilvy Estate Step back to the early 1900s on the distinguished Ogilvy Estate in Montecito. Designed circa 1910 by prominent architect, J.L. Curletti in an architectural style known as Foursquare Craftsman incorporating construction methods drawn from Swiss and Japanese techniques. At this time, the property had wells with such high quality water that folks would come from miles around to fill their mason jars. Around 1917, the family formed the Ogilvy Artesian Water Company to bottle their water and the company lasted for almost 30 years until 1937. In 100 years only five families have owned this remarkable property. Today this inviting compound includes over two acres of land with the main residence of approximately 5,750 square feet, plus an additional 4 detached ancillary structures: an office/guest suite, art studio, yoga studio and a 1-bedroom /2-bath guest house with a serene, private outdoor deck and dining area. Located along a private lane behind gates on a mostly flat parcel you will discover: dazzling landscaping expansive lawns a family orchard with 13 different types of fruit trees organic vegetable gardens over 200 rose bushes old-growth specimen trees, including the huge Norfolk Pine 50-foot long swimming pool Lighted bocce ball court spectacular mountain views. A covered front wraparound porch welcomes guests as if stepping into a bygone era of ease and tranquility. Upon entering the foyer, the beautiful clear Douglas Fir floors set the stage for the lovely interiors with large sun-drenched windows, many charming built-ins, tall-beamed ceilings, antique fixtures collected from around the world, updated plumbing and electrical and a fabulous eat-in kitchen with restored Magic Chef range, farm sink and more. Upstairs is the light and bright master bedroom suite with fireplace, gorgeous bathroom and large, private balcony that includes an outdoor shower. Two more spacious bedrooms with walk-in closets are located on this level, one with a fireplace, the other a large balcony. Tucked away, there is a quaint library with a private balcony. On the top floor is a large and versatile bonus room (or additional bedroom) replete with half-bath, skylights and Fir floors. The families who have owned this estate enjoyed the love of entertaining and this home has been filled with multi-generational family members gathering for parties, events and spending time together.
